outlook: Microsoft Outlook is rolling out this useful feature next month


Microsoft is bringing in a new handy feature on its mailing platform Outlook. Typing long emails on smartphones can be tedious at times and that is why the software giant is planning to add text predictions on Outlook. According to a post on Microsoft 365 Roadmap, the company will roll out the new feature next month for iOS and Android devices.
Once available, you have to enable the feature by going into Account Settings and turning on Text Predictions toggle. The artificial intelligence powered feature will be able to predict text to help users type faster. It can also help users to reduce spelling and grammar errors, saving a bit of time and effort. “Outlook can suggest words and phrases as you compose messages. When Outlook offers a suggestion, swipe to accept it.” the company explained in a message on the post.
It looks like Microsoft is slowly trying to catch up with its rival Google’s emailing platform. Gmail got the similar text predictions feature called Smart Compose back in 2019.
Recently, the company also rolled out the Outlook extension for Google Chrome browser. The extension allows you to perform various tasks from your Outlook account without switching the tabs. The extension works with Outlook personal accounts, Outlook work accounts and Hotmail accounts. A similar extension was launched by the company for Edge browser in June this year.
As mentioned on the Chrome Web Store, by using the extension you can – Access work or personal accounts, send and receive emails, get notifications, create events, view upcoming events, join online meetings, manage tasks and perform several other actions without switching to a new tab. To get the Outlook extension, go to the Chrome Web Store > search for Microsoft Outlook > tap on Add to Chrome.
